Alan de Jager

Chris Hodges
“Here's the real secret: you can fulfill the commands of the Bible better by falling in love with God than by trying to obey him. It's not that your obedience isn't significant or relevant; it's simply not the center of the wheel. No, the hub of your life is your relationship with God. Your behavior and obedience radiate like spokes from the center of your life and allow you to roll forward. When you try to make your eternal behavior the hub on which you turn, you get stuck. Forward motion must be fueled by love.”

“Nasuprot tome poslušnost je tako ljupka! Sveti Augustin piše: "Gospodine, najbolji su tvoji sluge koji žele svoj život prilagoditi tvojim odgovorima, radije nego da prilagode tvoje odgovore svojim željama." Trebamo svoje živote uskladiti s Božjim naukom, a ne prilagođavati Božji nauk načinu na koji želimo živjeti.”
Ignatius Mary, Pomozite sami sebi pa će vam i Bog pomoći
